Scalloped Lace



I love discovering organizations that are giving back to their local community and to charities around the world...and when I come across those I'm impressed with, I always want to share the great work that they are doing to help spread the word.  So I'm happy to introduce you today to Altar'd State - a fashion boutique with almost 20 stores in the Southeastern region & a fabulous online site.  

A portion of the proceeds from every Altar'd State brand purchase (products marked with their "Gives Back" logo) is donated to feed, shelter, clothe & educate children around the world.  They also have Mission Mondays, where 10% of their net proceeds are donated to various local charities every Monday.  

There are so many pieces I'm loving from their site right now - like this anchor sweaterthis embroidered topthis crochet-collared blouse or this ruffled-sleeve top.  They also have a great selection of summer dressesshoes & jewelry - not only are they affordably priced, but you will have the satisfaction of knowing that your purchase is helping to make a difference!







What I'm wearing:
c/o Altar'd State Baseball Tee (on sale!), ELLE skirt (similar here or here), eBay belt (similar here or here),  c/o JustFab Severine Heels, c/o Chicnova bag (similar here or here), Vintage bracelets (similar herehere or here), Simply Vera Vera Wang aviators (similar)

Great combination of playful with the baseball tee and feminine with the lace skirt. The shoes are great too and will even look fabulous in the fall!

Okay, number one, I think this might be my favorite look of yours. SO gorgeous. And is your hair different? Straighter? And I was just thinking about this store yesterday. My friend gave me a gift card and I was wondering what I did with it! I can't find it!

Great look! It definitely has a PRE-FALL feel to it and the colors are standouts. I love the accent of the gold belt and how it gives it a whole other dimension. P.S. Love the haircut too!
